Canon 77D Vs. Canon 6D

Canon 77D vs. Canon 6D

Canon 77D is APS-C sized camera, whereas Canon 6D is Full frame camera. Well, this is one of the big differences between these two cameras that practically confirms us that we will get much more clear and sharp images from 6D. But 77D is doubling its score by offering you one of the world’s best AF technology “Dual Pixel CMOS sensor”. Moreover, 77D also offers you record full HD video at 60fps, whereas 6D can also record Full HD but at 30fps only.

Similarly, there are numbers of big specifications differences you can see when you go through our thorough comparison between 77D and 6D.

Image quality

You can see Canon 77D carries 24 Million effective Pixels, which is more than that of Canon 6D’s 20MP, but still 6D delivers you the sharp and Crystal clear high resolution images with stunning details due to its Full Frame sensor. However, Canon 77D features innovative Digic 7 Image processor enables high speed operation and moreover due to Digic 7, 77d will be able to take best shots at lowlight also.

AF system

As I already told you that Canon 77 has sharp and intelligent Dual Pixel CMOS sensor AF system that will change the way you track – A very innovative AF technology that allows both capture video in Live View with smooth and precise autofocus. Not only this, this game-changing AF technology provides fast and accurate autofocus during Live View still image capture. Actually, CMOS sensor on 77D has two photodiodes per pixel (Total 40 million) and each pixel on the sensor performs both phase-difference detection autofocus and capture light. On the other hand, Phase-difference detection AF, enabling the cameras to achieve quick and easy auto focus. Furthermore, due this innovative AF system the camera gets autofocus on approx 80% of the image plane that eventually confirms you get images with stunning details.

On the other hand, 77D also features 45 all cross-type AF points that allows precise focusing of the fast running subjects, quickly and effortlessly. But unfortunately, Canon 6D doesn’t incorporate this special AF technology but it features Hybrid AF system (contrast detect + Phase detect) and carries only 11 AF points.


For incredible image quality and flexible shooting at lowlight conditions, Canon 6D offers you extended ISO range of 102400, whereas Canon 77D offers you limited ISO range of 51200 only.

Continuous shooting speed

You can see Canon 77D has 6fps of continuous shooting speed, So Canon 77D will perform fast with impressive result during capturing fast action objects with more accuracy and also can track each and every action of the fast moving subject more instantly compared to Canon 6D.


Canon 77D offers phenomenal performance in video recording! The 77D captures HD video at 60fps, plus it has HDR movie mode that captures correctly exposed and under-exposed images, then blends them into one video with more highlight detail for stunning results. On the other hand, 6D offers you Full HD video at 30fps. Moreover, due to DPAF, Canon 77D will allow you record solid video even at lowlight also.


Canon 6D offers you around 11oo shots at a time, whereas Canon 77D battery will be drained just by taking 600 shots only.


Canon 77D is solid option for the photographers who want an all-round like camera that also comes at an attainable price. But Canon 6D is great camera for image quality that gives you outstanding result in lowlight area plus the camera is weather sealed body. Now decision is yours.

Canon 77D $799.00
Canon 6D $1,299.00
